As these teams are two of the strongest in Concacaf, this game had the potential to be one of the best and most interesting of Matchday 14.
However, due to the results that occurred in Matchday 13, Canada qualified for the World Cup, while Panama were left without any chance of even playing the playoffs.
However, considering that it will be the first attendance for the Canadians since Spain 1982, this game could serve as a very good preparation for what will be the World Cup in Qatar, the second in their history.
For the Panamanians, they have the chance to play for one of the strongest teams in Concacaf and it will be a good preparation for future commitments.
There have not been many games between these two teams throughout history. Only 11 matches have been registered, in which Canada have become the dominators with 4 victories, while Panama could only win once.
The result that was repeated the most times between these two teams was a tie, 6 in total. The last time they faced was on October 14, 2021, with a victory for the Canadians by 4-1
Canada will head down to Panama on Wednesday in a celebratory mood having already qualified for their first World Cup since 1986.
The Canucks beat Jamaica 4-0 in front of a sold-out BMO Field on Sunday, maintaining their place at the top of the Concacaf table and clinching their place at Qatar 2022 in style.
As for Panama, they’re playing purely for pride after being eliminated from automatic and playoff contention with a resounding 5-1 defeat to the United States on Sunday night.
Los Canaleros started the campaign well but faded fast and have won just one of their last five matches.
Still, this could turn out to be quite an entertaining match with both teams letting off the handbrake. Read on for team news, broadcast details, head-to-head records, and more:
There may be some rotation from Panama but, on the whole, they’ll field a strong XI to pick up a win and restore some pride against the group leaders.
John Herdman made a few adjustments against Jamaica and may be tempted to do so again with qualification already assured. Still, the Canucks are looking to absolutely confirm top spot in the group and at least in the attacking third, will put out another strong team.
